Choose your measure:

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups King Arthur Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Mix*
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup grated apple (about half a large apple); or crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut, sweetened or unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • cinnamon-sugar for topping, optional
  • *Make sure you use our gluten-free BAKING MIX — NOT our gluten-free flour.


  1. Cover the raisins with hot water. Set them aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease the wells of a standard muffin pan.
  3. Stir together the dry ingredients and set them aside.
  4. Whisk together the melted butter or oil, molasses, eggs, water, and vanilla, then stir in the dry ingredients. Stir for about 30 seconds, until well blended.
  5. Drain the raisins, and fold them into the batter along with the fruit, carrots, coconut, nuts, and seeds.
  6. Scoop the batter by the 1/3-cupful into the prepared wells; a muffin scoop works well here. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar, if desired.
  7. Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center of one muffin comes out clean.
  8. Remove the muffins from the oven and, after 5 minutes, transfer them to a rack to cool.
  9. Yield: 12 muffins.
